I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.

I would check all fuses specified for central locking on your fuse card if you have not.

.

if no fuses are blown then this is likely a control module fault. you can attempt to reset it by unhooking the vehicle battery for an hour. if the issue remains, a new module may need to be fitted.

.

in the meantime, you can use the manual release for the fuel door to access the fuel filler. here are the instructions to do so: https://app.box.com/s/7z97t3clc1xoa4pmcitwa5ly7omu1153

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
